Who /How Many Are Doing Trent-Severn / Georgain Bay 2019?

Just wondering if there are others headed for the Trent - Severn and/or Georgian Bay for the 2019 Season?

there are at least a couple of us headed that way and wondering if others want to connect to swap / share info & plans and maybe connect along the way.
I am NOT interested in or trying to organize a flotilla as that gets rather complicated IMHO... just willing to network and share info and think it would be fun to connect at one or more places along the way.
Anyone interested chime in and we will maybe swap contact info re PM and share plans & info.
Loopers including the T-S in their itinerary? or other cruiser welcome.
If interested - have you ordered your TF Burgee?? FYI they are selling fast and may be on our second order soon.

Our home base is Bay Port in Midland. Plan for this summer is to visit the North Chanel again (we were there 2 years ago - last week of August/first week of September). We travelled up and back via the small craft channel, stopping at different marinas and anchorages whn we could. A 3-week trip.

Last year we went across Georgian Bay and then north as far as Tobermory. This was a 2 week trip.

And we do shorter trips also - often during the week since we're retirees!

We will likely be headed back towards NY by mid Aug so will miss you.
We do plan to spend a week at Honey Hbr S Bay Cove Marina early July if interested in connecting then?
Any must see / do or highly recommended Anchorages or marinas along the SCR?

Baccus - would like to meet and chat over a glass of red wine!

We can come up to the Honey Harbour Marina, or we could both cruise northward and anchor out somewhere along the small craft channel - lots of places to chose from. To avoid the weekenders during the week is best.

Will you be updating your website as you proceed along the Trent Canal?

We are headed back through the T/S this summer. Plans are to leave Grand Haven Michigan in early June, spend time in North Channel, Georgian Bay, transit from Port Severn to Trenton then the Rideau to Ottawa, over to Sorel and down the Champlain to NY and then points south for the winter.
Here is a link to our travels through the Trent last summer. It may give you some tips.

Perhaps we'll see you along the way....safe travels.

Thanks for the link will check it out. We have done the TS before so have some good ideas.
Any recommendations for GB appreciated... that will be all new for us.
Your Rideau Lk Champlain trip is a great one - you will enjoy it. Deep Bay, Mallets Bay and Burlington good stops. Reservations a must at Burlington if you want to get a slip vs mooring. Good public transportation to get anywhere in town.
Hope our wakes cross!

We will be doing the TSW this year. We will probably be at Trent round the 1st of July. We would be interested in meeting fellow travelers along the way to the Georgian Bay.

Are you planning on back tracking TSW or loop back to Erie?
I think I mentioned before that our rough plans are to stop at Trent Port early June and be roughly at Port Severn by July 1 w plans to spend a week at Honey Hbr before heading N through the GB islands.
I have been working on learning more about GB options but no schedule or itinerary yet.
Hope to connect somewhere along the way.
